Does not work anymore? keeps giving me sparce errors
There has been no recent change on the OPDS feed part (the one used by Challenger Comics).
I just started using Challenger viewer with my Ubooquity server, fantastic program btw!, and Josh seems to be right. Yes, the steps Matthew lists does what he says, the app downloads the directories and creates thumbnails, but whenever I open a comic it downloads the entire thing and then unpacks while letting me view the comic. But it does seem to keep the download. I've gone out of a comic, loaded another, then back into the first comic and it loads instantly without a new download.
This would be a shortcoming of the comic viewer, and I've asked for the directory where they're stored but was just told "No it doesn't download them."
Justin, Challenger Viewer may use an underlying technology on the device for fetching images that, but default, caches the images in a system accessible way. This makes sense for operating systems that run on mobile devices because it'd lessen the amount of bandwidth used over a wireless network.
If this is the case the engineer making Challenger Viewer may have written the program to not save local caches of the images, but the act of asking the system to fetch then render the image may cache it.
Matthew, I think you're right. I sat down and did some extensive testing with the app and my Ubooquity server. The short of it: After downloading a comic, I returned to my library view, turned off my wifi and I could get back to that comic. But I could not return to the comic that I opened previous to that. So it does seem to just be caching the images of the current comic! YAY! =D
